Pilots Showing Off Skills At Flag City BalloonFest

Some of the best hot air balloon pilots around are showing off their skills at Flag City BalloonFest this weekend in Findlay.

In the picture above and video below we saw a balloon skimming the surface of Lake Cascades behind the WFIN Studios Friday night.

It was great flying weather at Flag City BalloonFest on Friday morning and that’s WFIN’s Matt Demczyk was fortunate enough to go on a flight.

Matt went up with pilot Steve Wilkinson, from Palm Springs, California in Steve’s Cosmic Crisp apple-shaped balloon.

Steve has been flying hot air balloons for 42 years all across the world and also takes part in competitions.

It was a very smooth flight, and landing, as they landed in the backyard of a home a little south of Findlay.

In one of the videos below you can see the family come out and check out the balloon.

Flag City BalloonFest is being held on August 12th, 13th and 14th at Findlay’s Emory Adams Park.
